Arsenal have been handed a timely injury boost with the news that Jack Wilshere is set to return to full training ahead of schedule, according to the Mirror.
There were fears Wilshere may not be back until November at the earliest following his year-long lay-off, and reports last week suggested Arsene Wenger had claimed he would be happy if the 20-year-old was back before Christmas!
However, it appears those comments were made just to ease the pressure on Wilshere and Arsene didn’t want to publicly set any unrealistic comeback dates. John Cross at the Mirror now claims Jack is making good progress recently, he’s back running normally and got through a rigorous training regime of fitness work last week.
If all goes well, the midfielder will be back in full training in four weeks time and should resume first team duties in early October.
Wenger showed the amount of faith he has in the youngster by handing him the famous No.10 shirt last week following the sale of Robin van Persie, and I certainly can not wait for him to be back playing for The Arsenal.
If the Mirror are accurate and Wilshere could be back in action within weeks, that’s great, but let’s be overly cautious with him. The last thing we need is another set back.
